Larkins Learning Center

Meeting in the Larkins Learning Center

The Larkins Learning Center is perfect for business meetings, classes, and workshops. Lined with windows that look out onto the WinterGarden to the east and a semi-circular plaza to the west, the room can be configured several ways. Three plaza-facing doors and two sets of partitions allow the room to be used as one large unit or three smaller rooms. Audiovisual equipment is available for use for an additional charge.

A modern catering kitchen with a rear entry adjoins the room, with restrooms nearby. The adjoining plaza is perfect for outdoor receptions, mid-morning breaks, product sales, or mingling between classes or presentations.

Botanical Center

Our Botanical Center dates from the 1950′s and was renovated in 2014. This rustic structure features a split cedar shake roof and large windows overlooking serene gardens. The interior features an artist-rendered acid stained concrete floor that mimics the native Alabama stones used in the surrounding gardens. Exposed beams and ceiling fans compliment the lodge feel of the large open space. Interior colors are soft gray, warm browns and white trims. French doors on two sides open to the Woolford Plaza and fountain on the north side, while the south side opens to the Herb Garden — both areas are ideal for mid-morning breaks or casual networking.

A fully equipped kitchen and retro men’s and women’s restrooms round out the building’s amenities.
